If you can afford it dump the powacycle and get a decent bike.
Almost anything is a better ride. It's heavy badly geared and drains the little power in the battery just doing the most basic.
( my personal opinion from a short ownership of one)

Have you checked out the powacycle website?
They appear to have a page listing replacement batteries.

E-BikesDirect seem to list batteries, personally never bought from them.

Seems this has been discussed before by another owner.

Yes saw the new cost but read somewhere about recelling to save a bit, anyone know anything about recelling lithium polymer batteries or who does it?

I acquired it from a family member (so cheap) having had knee surgery I needed help on the hill of my short commute to work & it was fine until battery discharged & wouldn't recharge, not worth spending loads for distance I do, looks like its the bus.
